A study published this month found that since the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in June 2022, at least 30,000 babies have been born that would have been aborted.

The study looked at the effects of the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, which returned the issue of abortion to the states.

The research indicated a “triumph that pro-life policies result in lives saved,” while others argued that it was “an assault on reproductive autonomy.” (Trending: Biden’s Mental Decline Getting Even Worse)

“Our primary analysis indicates that in the first six months of 2023, births rose by an average of 2.3 percent in states enforcing total abortion bans compared to a control group of states where abortion rights remained protected, amounting to approximately 32,000 additional annual births resulting from abortion bans,” wrote the researchers.

The researchers claimed to have used data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and observed the “most profound transformation of the landscape of U.S. abortion access in 50 years.”

According to the study, “As of November 1, 2023, 14 states are enforcing bans on abortion in nearly all circumstances, and 23 percent of U.S. women of reproductive age have experienced an increase in driving distance to the nearest abortion facility, from an average of 43 miles one-way before Dobbs to 330 miles at present.”

Pro-Life activist Kristan Hawkins said it was a “triumph that pro-life policies result in lives saved.”

“The insinuation of a lot of coverage of such data points is that it’s a bad thing for there to be more children welcomed in states with better laws than in states that fast-track abortion,” she added.

Alison Gemmill criticized the data as “an assault on reproductive autonomy.”

“We don’t always detect signals in these population aggregates because there’s a lot of variation when you group everybody together,” explained Gemmill.

“The fact that there is a signal at the population level means that something’s really going on. It’s pretty strong evidence,” claimed the reseracher.

The researchers stated that “diminished abortion access poses a risk to the health and financial stability of this vulnerable population,” in their report.

“In 2020, approximately 1 in 5 pregnancies ended in abortion,” reported the authors.

Adding, “At the time they seek abortions, 75 percent of patients are low-income, 59 percent have previously given birth, and 55 percent report a recent disruptive life event such as falling behind on the rent or losing a job.”

The findings showed that the effects on abortion were “especially large” for Hispanic women and women ages 20 to 24.
